LEGENDS' QUOTES ON SACHIN TENDULKAR
Both of us have come a long away and it is a great honour that Tendulkar thinks I come close to resembling him as a batsman. It is a great honour, like a dream come true. If I die tomorrow I'll be the happiest man because I played this game because of Tendulkar, and Tendulkar himself saying that I resemble him - there is no bigger compliment than that.
I have seen GOD , he bats at no.4 for india in Tests.
He is someone sent from up there to play cricket and go back.
We did not lose to a team called india...we lost to a man called Sachin.
Sachin is a genius , i am a mere mortal!
Sachin is crickets GOD
The shot played on this ball is only possible for the GOD of cricket.
If someoom the highest peak of the world.
There is no shame losing to such a great player(sachin).
I would go to bed having nightmares of sachin dancing down the ground and hitting me for sixes.
He is 99.5% Perfect.. I'll pay to watch him play.
Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their television sets and switch off their lives.
"I dont know what to bowl at him. i bowled an inswinger n he drove me thr covers of d front foot. then i bld an outswinger n he again punched thr covers of d backfoot(for tamil fans-dai avan eppadi pottalum adikaranda). he is d toughest batsmen i 've bowled to. he shold live long n score lots of runs, but not against pakistan(smiling) "--LEGENDARY WASIM AKRAM on our own SACHIN on 24th april 2004 on espn Sachin's 30th B day program.(i think) on his knock in 2003 worldcup.
India's fortune will depend on how many runs the little champion scores. There is no doubt Tendulkar is the real thing.
"Maybe the country doesn't pray for me like they do for Sachin Tendulkar, but I know I'm on a good wicket as well. "
"I can't dream of an innings like that. He exists where we can't."
Playing in the same team as Sachin is a huge honour. His balance of mind, shrewd judgement, modesty and, above all, his technical brilliance make him my all-time hero... You can't get a more complete cricketer than Sachin. He has everything that a cricketer needs to have.
The thing I like most about Sachin is his intensity. After being in the game for so long, he still has the same desire to do well for India in any international match.I tell you what, this man is a legend.
“Sachin is the most complete batsman I have seen. His technique is so good and he has played well in all conditions. To have 41 one-day international tons shows what an appetite he has for scoring runs.”
